MCT 115th Release Sneak Peek #1

 It's day 1 of My Creative Time's 115th Edition Sneak Peeks!  We have such a fun release for you this month!  I used two awesome new die sets in my projects today:  the Star Pillow Box Die and our freebie this month, the Merry Christmas Die!

First, I used the new Star Pillow Box Die to make this adorable treat box! The die makes quite a large box, and it comes with a star die that you can use to make a window, or a coordinating tag!  I punched holes at the top so I could turn mine into an ornament, and filled it with some yummy mint M&Ms!

For my second project, I used the beautiful new Merry Christmas Die as the centerpiece of my card.  I cut the words with silver cardstock and adhered them to the shadow layer, cut out white cardstock.  I love that this die has the shadow layer that really helps make this sentiment pop!  Behind the sentiment, I tucked some pine boughs made with a die from an older MCT set, Fun Stitched Ornaments & More.

To make my background, I ink blended using Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Candied Apple and Abandoned Coral.  I then die cut this piece using one of the More Stitched Rectangular Frame Dies.  Finally, I embossed this piece using the Cuttlebug Windowpane Embossing Folder.


Starting this Wednesday, November 24, 2021 @ 8am PST we will be giving away this AWESOME new
Merry Christmas die. This die will be given to the FIRST 100 shoppers! If you would like this die for free, you might want to shop EARLY because once this die is gone, it will not be back until next year! This die will NOT be available for purchase once they are all gone.
